Mary Card's Crochet Lace - Bird Designs
by Barbara Ballantyne
Bringing together more than 20 of Mary Card's filet or picture crochet patterns which feature birds - including the motif for a bedspread with apple blossom, birds and poppies, the lyrebird duchesse set and runner and the trellis clothe that are rare. All were created originally during the first forty years of the twentieth century and have enchanted generations of women around the world.
The book will appeal to crocheters who wish to work the patterns - as originals or adaptations - to others who collect Mary Card's works and to others who may spend many happy hours admiring the varied designs and reading about Mary's life, work and the customs of the era.
This excellently presented book, and its companion book of flower designs, include beautifully clear redrawn graphs and Mary's revised and expanded instructions. A chapter on the more advanced techniques is included.
